Cartooning is writting

And drawing

And frustrating

Bear with me. I am working on my drawning style. The other day I discovered doddling as a warm up. But that lead to, what I call the “Keep on trucking” school of cartooning.

Robert Crumb was a huge influence on me. His art work grips me. It’s the kind of stuff that catches the eye from across the room.

Somewhere I have an old black light poster of three guys walking while leaning way back. The caption reads “Keep on Trucking”.

To this day I don’t know what that means. Goggle search!

When I was finished with my latest drawing, I knew I had hit something. My style has changed.

But the transition is less than smooth. I redrew today’s cartoon several times. Including scetches. And still, I do not think it is right.

So why hit the publish button if I am not happy with my work.

I want to document the progress and, I hope, get some freed back.

My wife likes the second drawing. But, I suspect that is because she saw it first. She liked the gag when I first showed her the pencil sketch; the finished drawing she barely smiled.

So here it is. Time to move on.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
